Authorship and Contribution Policy

The Revista de Ciencias Tecnológicas (RECIT) uses the CRediT(Contributor Roles Taxonomy) with the intention of recognizing individual author contributions, reducing authorship disputes, and facilitating collaboration.

CRediT offers authors the opportunity to share an accurate and detailed description of their diverse contributions to the published work.

  • The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that the descriptions are accurate and agreed upon by all authors.
  • The role(s) of all authors should be listed, using the relevant above categories.
  • Authors may have contributed in multiple roles.
  • CRediT in no way changes the journal’s criteria to qualify for authorship.

CRediT statements should be provided during the submission process and will appear above the acknowledgment section of the published paper as shown further below (starting from Volume 4 (2) of the RECIT Journal)
